Japan Market Entry
Japan is the third-largest economy in the world which is highly developed and very demanding. Although challenging, Japan is still a rewarding market for businesses that manage to overcome the barriers to entry and can adapt to local requirements. HLS Japan helps businesses with comprehensive market entry support, as well as local accounting, audit, transfer pricing, and tax services.
Through our global network, we assist our clients on various transfer pricing subjects such as risk assessment, planning, preparing transfer pricing documentation, tax inspection management, mutual consultation and obtaining advance pricing agreement (APA).
Our competitive advantage comes from our highly refined overseas tax service which is made possible by our close relationship with our U.S. offices, as well as the team of international tax accountants with extensive experience.
